It's been mentioned a couple times here that the can-bus cancellers will not work. Don't get them. The resistors, a relay harness, and the actual HID kit are all you need.

With the 55w ballasts, you should get everything I just mentioned above.

There is at least one person in this thread claiming resistors are not needed for the 55w ballasts, but a few others calling BS. I haven't tried a 55w setup so I can't verify one way or the other.

However, I will say that since resistors are cheap as hell that you may as well spend the money just in case. No need to stop your install and wait for resistors to ship if you end up needing them.
